One week ago, Hurricane Irma barreled its way through the state of Florida causing widespread devastation and displacing millions. Business interruptions caused by power outages, flooding and debris affected all major markets to some degree.
While most Florida businesses were back up and running by the week’s end, natural disasters like Irma can have future implications for location decisions and how commerce is delivered. The state’s ability to quickly rebound and rebuild in less than a week is a testament to the preparedness and adaptability of government and the private sector working together. The process has only started but the results can be measured in the economic vitality and resilience Florida can expect to see in the coming months.
